Geospatial and Environmental Analysis
Geospatial analysis allows the user to perform statistical analysis on data that has a spatial component and is one of the core uses for a GIS. In this class you will learn the fundamentals of geospatial and environmental analysis during four week-long modules: Week 1: Tour ArcToolbox and learn how to use common geospatial analysis tools built into ArcGIS Week 2: Gain a working understanding of raster data models: symbolize, reproject, overlay, and assess rasters. Week 3: Expand your knowledge of symbology. Learn how to visually display your data by classifying it in logical groupings and then symbolizing it on your map. Week 4: Learn how to use environment variables to constrain your analyses and get better quality data products. Take Geospatial and Environmental Analysis as a standalone course or as part of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialization. By completing the third class in the Specialization you will gain the skills needed to succeed in the full program.
